Well, all I saw was a dusting on the roof of my car. Some places
farther south (near Salem) and farther east were hit worse.
...but what it is like down here when anyone even hints there may be
snow is that everyone panics. All you folks back in the northeast (US)
& Canada (except for the balmy BC) would laugh at us here on the Pacific
coast. Just like Florida...except we have higher hills and mountains
to climb over.
